Times Square TKTS Booth (Finally!) Opens

2nd\NW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

By CBS News

The TKTS booth in New York's Times Square has a new updated look that fits in with its neon-bright neighborhood.

The new booth, which sits on a traffic island at the intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue, is a fiberglass shell encased by an all-glass structure that sits under a glowing red glass staircase.

The Theatre Development Fund says the pedestrian space of the once crowded island, known as Father Duffy Square, also has been updated and enlarged by 115 percent. Hundreds of tourists and New Yorkers line up at the booth daily to buy same-day tickets to Broadway and off-Broadway shows.

The new booth officially opens Thursday [today] afternoon.
